Indeed, if we mistake not, Adams the 1st, charged the cost of his carriage and horses to the public ! All this - Ogle doubtless knew, and yet he tells the people, that no such thing as a stable, or any thing like it, was ever known until after Wow let us examine the weighty affair of THE FRENCH BEDSTEADS. Page 15, Ogle thus disclaims about the purchase of French bedsteads by Mr Van Buren, viz : "I have before me, Mr Chairman, the original bill, duly receipted, of C. H. and J. F. White for sundry " French Bedsteads," "Marble-top Washstands," "dining room " " commode, with statuary marble top," " Dres- ini T? aaa-AAava 9f nn4 ntVk lt-wlisl at Art? Itrktirrtlt August 10, 1337, for the sum of $1,599 60 of the people's cash. These articles may be denominated household furniture' in the proper and true understanding of the terms. But, sir, 1 protest against expending the mon ey of my constituents for elegaut FRENCH BEDSTEADS. Must the AMERICAN oak, and hickory, and cherry, and walnut and maple, that admits of 'smoothest stain,' stand neglected in the forests, for the gilt rosewood, sandal, ebony, box, and mahogany of France, and the far off 'isles of the sea ? Shall the people's money be shipped 'across the ocean by the people's chief servant to sup port FOREIGN MECHANICS, whilst OUR OWN 'CUNNING WORKMEN" almost perish for lack of bread? Shall that 'bread ' be withheld from the mouth of honest labor at home, but lavished upon the subjects of kings abroad? Why was Mr Van Buren so anxious to possess an elegant FRENCH BEDSTEAD? Does he desire to have the trimmings of a 'CROWN BED'also?" It is sufficient reply to this tirade, to state the fact that these "French bedsteads," so called, were made by "OUR OWN CUN NING PHI A. Is Mr Ogle so ignorant as not to know that "French bedsteads" are made by our own cabinet makers throughout the Uuion? We do not believe it. We do not believe that he supposed these bedsteads were made in b ranee, when he put this rigmarole togeth r- But suppose he was ignorant enough to think that they were called French, they were actually made in France, how will he excuse himself Cor justifying Mr Monroe in purchas ing the same kind of furniture? Voucher 66 iu Mr Monroe's account for 181S contains the following items, viz: Aug. 4, To one mahogany sideboard $65 To one FRENCH Bedstead 45 Yet there was no "trumpery" in this! It was all right to let our oak, hickory, cherry, and maple grow in our forests, and our work men starve, in 1818. but Mr Van Buren's buying a "French bedstead," made in Phila delphia, is monstrous! Does he desire to have "the trimming of a CROWN BED also?" sayslOgle. Why, Charley,' you have already approved, not only What "crown" can this be? We remember to have beard of but one IRON CROWN, and that was the crown of Charlemagne, Em peror of Germany, which has been placed on the heads of the Emnerors at their cor onation, down to the present century. Na poleon, we believe, brought bis crown to aris. and, on one occasion, had it plac ed on his head. Did Mr Monroe have it brought to America with his French furniture, and secretly kept in repair to be clapped on his own head upon a convenient occasion? Oh, Charlev Oele, Charley Oi?Ie, oh! How could you turn traitor to ,the dear people!" How could YOU approve of the iron crown to be placed on the head of our Democratic President? The traitor! He not only ap proves ot the LKUWJN, but in bis speech, page 31, actually recommends the 1H KOINE also! Dost thou start Republican reader? Ogle has gone over to the enemy. Read what he says: "It may with GREAT PROPRIETY be alleged," says he, "that as we have the palace, with its tabourets, and other splendid regalia, palace grounds, palace gardens, grand levees, State banquets, court ceremonials, court costumes, stalls for the royal steeds and royal revenues, we should not hesitate about a throne, which, according to the definition of Napoleon Bona arte, is six piue planks and a velvet carpet ?" You see, reader, what a traitor this man has become. Already approving of "CROWNS" and declaring that aTHKOJNJi" may be introduced ltwith great propriety," what cau we expect of him but that he will next insist on the "aiaaem" and the "sceptre, and the canopy, and a JvlXMlr to stt under tt! 1 here is another fact necessary to be re membered here. The GILT FRENCH CHAIRS introduced into the President's House by Mr Monroe, aud approved by Mr Ogle, had on their rich coverings the simili tude of an IMPERIAL CROWN, surroun ded by the regalia oj France! These Ogle Democratic emblems remained there until Mr Van Buren came into office, when he had them stHppedoff, and others substituted, bear ing our own glorious stars, aud other Repub lican insigriia. But Ogle, who is well pleas ed with Mr Monroe's FRENCH IMPE RIAL CROWNS, is quite offended with Mr Van Buren's AMERICAN STARS! ! A traitor, no doubt ! MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. Monroe, 1817, Voucher 7.

On my way to the Indian Springs to meet such of my fellow-citizens as might comply with the invitation to be present at a dinner, to be given to our Senators and three of our Representatives in Congress, on the 2d of September, I am detained here by a painful disorder, iuc npatible with the prosecution of my jouruey.

We intended to add a commentary on the absolute villauy of this man Ogle. He knew that Mr Monroe's extravagance in o :gioally furnishing the house had been sanct.oned by Congress; that Congress has put at the dis position of every President fince, anpropria tions to keep up the furniture in the same style; that out of these appropriations, General Jackson and Mr Van Buret have tot only kept up the old furniture, but have r irnished the spacious east room, for which l her Mr Adams nor Mr Monroe purchased t single article; that in expending the apprr ; iations, Mr Van Buren or his agents have bu perform ed a duty imposed ou him by Congress; that Mr Van Buren never has asked for a dollar for furniture, and that it was his duty to see that the furniture of the people's hou:- , not the "President's Palace," should be ke up in the style th - ReptwnMivem of ti people have, time and again, sanctioned and ap proved. If Ogle wanted reform, if he had iu tended any thing honest, any thing but an electioneering humbug, he would have in troduced a bill iuto the house directing all these "tabby cats," fringes, tassels, plateaus, gilt chairs, silver plate, gold spoons, gilt clocks, lamps, Sic. &c. to be sold and re placed by plain furniture, appropriate to the I Should the belief be entertained that the declarations of the parties themselves, or those of friends anxious to promote their success are not safe guides, the motive to conceal ment, equivocation, or deception being so powerful, try the parties - by the experimentum cruets. In various stations each has been before the public, for more than thirty years. Com pare their professions with their acts, and then the results of each comparison. If si ill not satisfied, there are other broad facts that cannot fail to bring conviction to the honest ly inquiring mind. A better judgement of the probable conduct of an administration in this country is to be formed by looking at the parties by whom its chief is brought forward and by whom he will be supported, if ttey succeed, than by a scrutiny into the political opinious and political course of the person who is proposed for that station. xur van tJuren is me cana urate oi mat par ty in all the States, who, under the lead of Gen. Jackson, arrested the gigantic aud mad scheme of universal Internal Improve ment who wrested the public money from the hands of irresponsible and doubtful cor porations, and broke their power who seek to reduce duties aud taxes to the wants of the Government; and who believe these wants admit or uiintuuitw, f the public Apendi- ture; ot a party every where arrayed against Abolition, and ready, at all hazards and at all times, to see that the constitutional guaranty of Southern property is fairly and faithfully maintained. He is equally accepta ble to that party in the Southern, Western, Eastern and Middle States has been forced upon us neither by combinations or intri gues. Gen. Harrison is the candidate of all the parties in the Uuited States who can be brought to act against the present administra tiou by the common instiuct of hatred. He was forced upon the Southern portion of these parties by the combination of Anti-masonry and Abolitionism. Not one Southern vote was given him iu the Harrisburg Convention. Among his supporters are ranked the high Tariffand Internal Improvement meu, uuder the ban uers of Mr Clay; the high-toued poli ticians of the New Eugland Slates who construe the Constitution like the common law, which contracted as it may seem, ex-p-iuds indefinitely according to the supposed exigency of the times who believe there is no safety, no prosperity without the agency of a National Batik to manage the fiscal con cerns of the Government aud furnish a cur rency for the people who opposed the late war, and established, according to opinions expressed in the.
